A Safe Home Environment for Your Teen with Reactive Attachment Disorder
There are two types of Reactive Attachment Disorder (sometimes also known as Radical Attachment Disorder). With the first, your teen might be removed, isolated, emotionally unresponsive or withdrawn. With the other kind, maybe unbecomingly familiar or affectionate with complete strangers.
Steady care of a baby’s physical and emotional requirements allows them to learn to bond, and devoid of that (maybe due to temporary foster care situations or adoption), a child may later have difficulty in establishing close relationships.
We can help your child who struggles with Reactive Attachment Disorder (or RAD), a rare but serious condition in which s/he has been unable to form a healthy emotional attachment with mother (or primary caregiver).
Wolf Creek Academy – Here to Help your Teen with Reactive Attachment Disorder
A secure and nurturing environment (such as what you’ll find at Wolf Creek) is vital in order for your child to be able to create healthy connections. Family therapy may be critically helpful in treatment for Reactive Attachment Disorder, encouraging communication between you and your adolescent. By teaching you special (parenting) skills, your child can steer clear of developing social and behavioral issues later in life, and in its place go on to enjoy healthy relationships with you and with others.
A Hope and a Future for Every Child.
Wolf Creek Academy is faith-based; a professionally team staffed residential boarding school, here to help your struggling or rebellious teen. Our program instills integrity, accountability, responsibility and character while providing your child behavioral counseling and a quality education.
Our family-model lifestyle offers a safe, nurturing atmosphere that encourages developing skills, particularly in building positive relationships with authority figures as well as their peers. The staff works with our boys and girls to teach them independent skills and valuable life lessons that will prove indispensible for building their future.
Counseling is provided for teens who struggle with behavioral and emotional problems, and they meet with a licensed certified counselor once weekly at a minimum. Daily group sessions are used to address issues of anger management and respect of authority, self-respect, or other relevant issues. The non-threatening atmosphere of this small group session allows them to learn from one another, and they can realize there are appropriate ways of managing their respective behavioral difficulties. Regular psychiatric monitoring is available for students who require medication.
The accredited Lighthouse Christian Academy supports the mission of Wolf Creek Academy, to help students master curriculum knowledge with the Accelerated Christian Education system. Whether moderately paced learner or high achiever, all children are enabled to work at their own ability and appropriate level in our classroom settings, and our therapeutic and nurturing environment is a safeguard for success.
Designed to meet the learning needs of the individual child, students advance at their own pace; most often an accelerated pace which boosts self-respect, repairs self-confidence and promotes security for a successful future. They are recognized and rewarded for value, effort and significance in learning.
We know our teens to be quite capable of becoming dependable and mature young men and women, when given the proper direction. Please call (877) 477-9653 so that the therapeutic and academic program of Wolf Creek Academy can help your problem child develop into a successful young adult.
